Before I start I want to let you know that I am completely new to the field of deep learning! Since I need a new graphics card either way (gaming you know) I am thinking about buying the GTX 1060 with 6GB or the 1070 ti with 8GB. Because I am not rich, basically I am a pretty poor student ;), I don't want to waste my money. I don't need deep learning for my studies I just want to dive into this topic because of personal interest. What I want to say is that I can wait a little bit longer and don't need the results as quick as possible.
So here is my question: Can I do deep learning with the 1060 (6GB seem to be very limiting according to some websites) or the 1070 ti? Is the 1070 ti overkill for a person hobby deep learner?
Or should I wait for the new generation Nvidia graphics card?
Thank you very much in advance!
